Truant Jenny

Yes, it's me…truant Jenny. Sorry for not keeping up with the posting. I have been getting side tracked lately. Trying to leave comments on blogs, watch TV, and knit. And don't even mention Ravelry. I'm surprised I even remember my log in. I just can't keep up with everything. I am only human. This is the vicious circle I live in.

Okay enough of that. So, I do have some FOs. I think they were end of 07 beginning of 08, like by the 5th. It was so long ago, I don't even remember. I just glad to be done with them. You all remember my Garden of Eden Scarf:

Pattern: None. Simple garter stitch. 24 or 25 stitches across
Materials: 2 balls of Eden from Moda Dea
Needle: 10 1/2
Start Date: Oh God, sometime in the summer
Completion Date: After December 25, 2007
Size: N/A

Okay this yarn drove me insane, hence the long completion time. There are many dropped stitches but you will never see them because of the bobbles in the yarn. I must admit though, the scarf is warm and just the right width to cover my neck. No need for wrapping, which is good because I don't have the length for it. The scarf is pretty, but never again with that yarn.
Next I have my brown stripped socks:

Pattern: None. Just a simple sock pattern.
Materials: 1 ball of clearance yarn from Rosie's. Think it's Trekking, but don't hold me to it. Needle size: 2
Start Date: September 2007
Completion Date: After December 25, 2007
Size: Women's 9

Wasn't crazy about this yarn when I was working it. But since washing, the socks feel much nicer. I wear green and tan a lot, and these sock do look nice under pale green pants. These were my second pair of completed socks.

I gotta say, as I sit here, I'm thinking, "What the hell were you doing all fall?" What else were you knitting?" These are excellent questions that I really need to think upon. I was taking a class. Knitting a few things, that I can remember off the top of my head. But other wise, I'm drawing a blank. I know sometimes when I get home from work, I'm too tired to knit. Like I haven't really knit at all this week. But this fall….I just don't know. Oh well, I'll just have to work harder at getting more FOs And posting :)
